This is indeed a very cozy place, laid-back, old house, relaxed atmosphere, very friendly chief and staff, we did enjoy this place as we enjoyed the overall attitude and landscape of Cape Saint Francis.

We love to take a break from it all and get away to St Francis. Thatchwoods is one of our first choices as it has a lovely feel with the thatch roof, eastern cape bush and overlooking the golf course. Harrie and his team are on site to greet and make sure everything is in order.

We had a very comfortable 3 night stay at Thatchwood. Our room was very cozy, with a large spotless bathroom. Harrie gave us all the info we needed to make our stay memorable. We loved having the freedom to come and go as we pleased and the Bowls Club was situated close by. Thank you Harrie, we appreciate our stay.

I can Recommand Room No. 1 because of its very good Location with direct Access to the Garden and Pool and nearance to the Golf Course. Furthermore the great bathroom is a Great advantage. The Roof of Thatchwood gives a very Natural near feeling and flavour.
